I absolutely adore your work, especially your use of colors. I know it's vague, but how do you choose the colors you use? Do you have any tips with using colors?

A

hey thanks !

I mostly work with a binary technic, always comparing two colors to each others at each brush stroke. To make light you need to compare it to shadow and so on. Yeah, I know it’s sound obvious but it takes me years to develop my eyes and see it.

I remember an advice of a teacher when I was in art school for few months. He said to watch a white wall and try to see colors ( in shadows or light). In fact you can see many many colors into just a simple white wall and it takes times to develop your eyes to see it…

Try to see warm and cold colors.  Warm colors are not just red or yellow and cold colors are not just blue or green. Warm and cold colors is about comparing two colors. So, one blue can hotter than another blue, It can be hotter than red too. And it’s hell hard to see it.

I was confuse a little bit with that exercice… Last summer I went to Paris to the Orsay museum to look for the impressionist artist. I wanted to see it for years but for many reason I couldn’t… probably bad luck.

And I was blown away when I saw all the painting, every colors was lightfull, I studied them very hard, what I understand is that you can’t study those painting from google image you need to see the real painting to understand how good color picking are… from these day I start my quest with color picking.

That’s what I try to do I think, I decompose light in a very rough way.

The only really advice I could give is to practice your eyes to see your own colors.

You have many others artists with great tutorial, the one that help me the most is the “Alla Prima” from richard schmid

don’t know if it helps or not ^^…

cheers,

I’m getting more and more abstract with colors, don’t know what I’m looking for. I hope it won’t get too fancy.

Q

ianmahler asked:

I'm not sure if anyone has already asked this, but, is Oxford Circus available online, or in print? If so, how could anyone get their hands on it? Or is it still in the works, as a concept? I'd just love to be able to read it. -Thank you for your time, friend. You're a great artist I admire and look up to. Best of luck.

A

Nothing for the moment ! I have to finish Dessinateur de Mensonges first and then Café Rouge, and finally I will be able to deal with Oxford Circus :D… You’ll get real news about it in 3 or 4 years ^^…

Sketch between two color pages. don’t know if I’ll finish or not.

WIP - messing around with colors and trying to get used to my new brush, it is very laggy… I’m still looking for the right setting.

Last page ! Have to keep it secret from now ahah.

doodle. trying something but don’t know what XD.

Just received the spanish version of my comic ! feels strange :D. Published by  Ninth Ediciones
